nominee. while the editors praise president obama's early efforts to revitalize the economy through his stimulus plan, it concluded his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. joining me now for the politics of weather and everything else is obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod. good morning, david. let me start here with the storm. when you look at virginia where this is likely to be the swing state most affected, does anything worry you about that state being more or less paralyzed by weather for a couple three, four days? >> well, the first thing i think we should say is we're most concerned about people. this storm could affect 50 million americans. the president has been in close contact with fema and dhs and all the agencies that have responsibility here to make sure we're doing everything we can for people, and that's what he is going to continue to do throughout this -- throughout this storm, and in terms of how it affects the election, i don't think anybody really knows. obviousl

a plan to get this economy going. >> paul: and joining the panel this week, wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, political diary editor jason riley, james freeman and washington columnist kim strassel. >> any evidence that hurricane sandy is going to affect this race? >> i think, yes, i think it might, in the sense that -- i think one of the big elements in the race is the level of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, a
. >> we will continue the discussion about the economy, and whether the math really adds up for the deficit. we will look at some of the numbers, all of that on the other side of the debate. please stay with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this past year was $1.1 trillion. if you are not going to raise taxes, what are the things you can cut to get close to erasing a $1.1 trillion deficit? >> we should be about $230 billion, but we have to look at agencies that were created that are not meeting up to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at
>> what did you learn? >> the economy is improving. i learned parade has 88 million subscribers and i listened to eric smith on the way in. >> thanks to you all and for the morning joe team great work this week as every week. you guys ar maizing. thank you so much. all right. it's way too early. mark halperin, what time is it? >> stay tuned for "chuck today and the daily rundown." >>> a better than expected jobs report just days before the country decides who will be the next president. 171,000 jobs added in the month of october and revised reports add another 84,000. the initial reaction is positive. does it move any votes? 88 hours in ohio. that is what the next few days will feel like. president obama and governor romney are in the buckeye state as if the whole race may depend on it. guess what? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and
, let's start with the economy which everyone agrees is the number one concern for voters. senator johnson in wisconsin, let me put up numbers, the unemployment rate is nationally 7.8% and gdp growth in the third quarter rose from 1.3% in the second quarter to 2.0 and it is still a weak recovery but aren't the president's policies starting to turn things around? >> no, we have had incredibly tepid, meager recovery, and the fact that gdp rose 2%, all you can say is it is less bad news and what happened here in wisconsin, after the first debate, the very false character president obama spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying governor romney was shattered and when wisconsin saw it, he was a man with integrity and intelligence and had a plan unlike president obama, who has no ways to save social security or focus and unlike the senate, there has been no leadership in three years and, ryan paul, has the courage to put forward real proposals. >> chris: let me, senator warner talk about the economic recovery, weak as it is in historical terms, the fact is, even though, as i say,
are needed each month to turn the economy around. so that is the big number we have. that's where we start. good morning. i'm bill hemmer. welcome here. morning, martha. martha: good morning bill. what a week. it is friday. welcome everybody, i'm martha maccallum. this jobs report today could be the freshest things people have in their mind in terms of a economic number when they head to the polls in a few days. this short shows it has been a very slow, sluggish recovery. the government reports real unemployment, this is the number we want to focus on, 14.6%. we say that for a good reason. that includes people that are underemployed, even people only worked one day, get counted in the underemployed, part time emed employed. some just have given up. bill: stuart varney, anchor fox business network. good morning to you. start with the more significant number you find there. what is that, stuart? >> that is the real unemployment rate. that gives the true picture of the employment situation in america today. the that real unemployment rate is 14.6%. that is a dismal picture of the employment p
the american economy was in the golden age of economic prosperity. a rising tide was lifting all boats. the economy had grown rapidly. the wages of most workers have been growing faster than the rate of theinflation. almost no one talked about poverty. book not only change the discourse but the public policy landscape. he wrote "there is a familiar america that has the highest standard of living the world has ever known. that is not change the fact that tens of millions of americans are at this very moment existing at levels of been need those necessary for human decency." a short time later. the article appeared in the new yorker called "our invisible port." they said "the extent of our poverty has suddenly become visible." it is said that walter heller gate kennedy both the book and the new yorker review. most people and he read only the review. he did tell carrington to begin to put together some proposals to reduce poverty. last chapters he wrote "there is no point to tell the institutions of a war on poverty. there's information enough for actions. all that is lacking is the polit
not quite as optimistic about where the economy is at and out of the market. and so, their own individual participation has been declining. and i don't know if that's necessarily telegraphed some problems down the road, but what do you think? >> well, i think we're living through a lot of uncertainty in the market, whether it's europe, whether it's the direction, the direction of the u.s. economy and the federal debt. and all of those things are certainly weighing on the retail investor's mind and definitely they're been moving to conservative position, as have been this, they've been protecting liquidity and building their positions and fairly risk averse, now, hopefully i'm cautiously optimistic on the u.s. economy that once they get through this election, regardless of who wins, our leaders in washington come together and develop a plan to deal with our fiscal challenges. >> well, springs eternal, we'll see, i was saying teddy, teddy weisberg, teddy was here the last time we had a two day disruption in 1888 and now, must be living history all over again. teddy. how do you think it's go
and big ideas and the romney campaign is it thinking that the electorate is right focused on the economy. and that all of this is it about the pocket book and all of it is what poem feel about the economy and how they look about the next four years and about the next, how, how the next four years will go and working with the other party. if you listen to governor romney he talks about bipartisanship and working with democrats and that is coming across in the final 24 hours. >> stow much criticism for the current president for not doing that. and not enough reaching across the aisle. and you would think that the next person who would take office would do a better job and do it differently. talking about focusing on the economy. karl rove said today in an article or interview with washington post. he feels super storm hurricane sandy may have taken them off message. >> karl doesn't say that unless the numbers prove it out. karl is a numbers guy. he's looking at numbers some place that have stalled for the romney campaign. >> do we know which he's look at. >> he made a bold prediction for t
campaign wants to talk about the economy. ern talks about the denver debate as being this transcendent moment. in effect, this was the moment moderate mitt sort of debuted in the campaign. and i think that was a very resonant point to a lot of undecide women. >> people don't vote nationally on the basis of what two candidates say in two medium-sized debates. >> here's the way i think it mates out politically. first of all, there's the base. the president wants to talk aboutars bothers because he wants to tell democrats there are real things in stakes in this election. with swing voters-- and i talked to a lot of them-- when you talk to women, they think romney has the answer on the economy. and the worry here for the obama administration is married women. they are less dependent on the government, and less likely to buy the president's argument. so they're the group want obama campaign is really worried about. when i talk to the married women, on the one hand they say they think romney can handle the economy and they're worried about the republicans being too extreme and go back and fo
to the economy is sort of a muddle. that the way he loses is if the unemployment rate remains high, jobs -- the jobs are not -- are 75,000, 80,000 jobs created no talking point where he can say it's not where we want it to be but i think it's getting better, so i think a muddle -- it's sort of the tie goes to the incumbent. in baseball, be it's muddled enough it winds up not helping mitt romney which means it helps barack obama a little bit. >> let me ask you, charlie, just switching gears for a second, unless you disagree with chris cizilla, i wanted to ask you about the house and the senate. because if president obama were to win then perhaps he could pull a couple of those close senate races in, the house we pretty much all agree is going to stay republican, but one of the things we've been looking at more closely is that this is going to be a more partisan and less experienced house of representatives. >> exactly. our model this morning had democrats picking up three or four seats total and they need 25. you're absolutely right, that the people that are leaving congress, whether they
america that has a 21st century economy running on a 21st century foundation. >> schieffer: what happened to the women's vote? the prfs the way ahead. that seems to be closing. are you going to be able to get that back? >> i'm here in ohio. i just checked the early vote. the president is up almost two to one over mitt romney. and that's an indication that the field operation, the communication strategy, and the message of a resurgence of strengthening middle class is essential. and also the choice that women have to face on a host of issues from economic to health care issues that i think the president's message is right for them. if you look at the early votes in iowa, ohio, florida, the president's campaign is actually-- an investment that he made in the "get out of vote" effort identifying their voters is starting to pay off because they're beating all their numbers from '08. >> schieffer: we have to stop you there. the clock ran out. back with personal thoughts nay second. >> thanks, bob. born with. something you'r and inspires the things you choose to do. you do what you do... becaus
'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there. >>> you sure wouldn't know it from the action lately. where we are in the year right now this used to be the season for owning tech stocks. every autumn, tech would outperform the rest of the market, virtually without fail. as all things technology rallied close to the holidays, the corporate technology budget flush this year, not happening at all. tech has been getting slaughtered. is this a temporary problem or something more permanent, more persistent happening out there? perhaps being caused by the decline of the desk top? the whole tech sector needs a checkup. no better place than avnet. avnet is the ultimate thermometer around. this company i like to call the biggest supermarket of tech on earth. the distributor of electronic components and one of the largest distri
will have on the economy, we are joined by fox news editor liz macdonald. let's start with just the straightforward. i mean, the markets closed for a couple of days. millions of people not able to get to work. i mean, this is going to have an extraordinary impact on the consumption economy as well. >> i think you're right. well we doing is compiling this. what were getting from economists to work a wall street shops and down in washington d.c., what strikes me is there has been a lot of comparisons to hurricane katrina. i would say that is not the comparison because we are talking about the most impact -- densely populated by the rebels judge of the united states where one-fifth of the u.s. economy is down -- generated, of death of the population lives in the theft of car sales, fifth of housing whereas the trend was narrowly focused. it was a tragic event. this is more like a hurricane that hit in 1938 that helped cars out and create that hamptons and east in the long end. certainly possibly this hurricane redefining the coast of new jersey in similar fashion , but over talking
damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks like a war zone after a fire devastated the small community. absolutely devastated it. more than 100 homes were destroyed. officials say the high winds from the storm pushed the flames from one building to the next. amazingly, no serious injuries reported there. but high god, look at that neighborhood. it
thought. the unemployment rate inched up from 7.8% to 7.9%. the economy added an average of 173,000 jobs per month since july. mitt romney issued a statement that said the unemployment rate is a sad reminder the economy is a virtual standstill for the jobless rate is higher than it was when president obama took office. we will hilton -- we will hear more about the unemployment number from both campaigns today. they are on the campaign trail with four days to go into the elections. president obama has three stops in ohio. coming up in about 15 minutes here on c-span, we will take you to the first stop of the day in hilltard outside columbus. the first lady michelle obama is campaigning in virginia today. at 5:30 eastern, we will take you to petersburg where she will be speaking with supporters. tonight on c-span, mitt romney and paul brian will be joined by their wives for a rally in west chester, ohio. another big names are appearing including condoleezza rice and senator john mccain this evening at 7:30 eastern and we will have that live on c-span. while we wait to hear from president o
, unemployment and the economy continue to be the factors that voters go in on tuesday with top of mind and not some of these other things? >> no. i agree with you. it only relates back, s.e. in terms of your argument how to improve the economy, how to create jobs. the president stresses a bigger role for government than mitt romney does and that's the argument. that's the only point about the spherics of communal effort. no, but it's definitely about jobs and the economy. are you kidding me? the voracity of where jeeps are made in ohio or in china tells you everything you need to know about what this election is all about. this election comes down to the question of whether all the jeeps are going to be made in toledo or whether some of are also going to be made in china. that's the election in a nutshell. the jeep, not the storm, but the jeep is really the symbol of this election. >> howard, if you can be a fly on the wall in boston and chicago at the same time -- >> i've tried. >> -- where do you think they would feel more benefit from the race being frozen, knocked off the a-block a
% of likely voters disapproving of his performance on the economy. while only 45% approve. 47% disapprove of his handling of the libya. 49% approve. likely voters are closely divided on the question of whether the obama administration tried to mislead americans about the terror attack in libya. 44% say yes, 47% say no. >> the american people deserve the truth. >> four republican senators today fired off a letter to the president, demanding to know, "what steps you and your administration took or failed to take before, during and after the terrorist attack to protect american lives." >> they are stonewalling us. i think they are trying to run out the clock until this election. >> republican lindsey graham today sent a separate letter to tunisian officials requesting they give the u.s. government access to al harzi, the only person in custody over the benghazi attack. >> i frankly am offended by the administration not being honest with the american people. and sharing any information with congress. >> senator gram told me that tunisian government responded he could submit questions in writi
but we are in tough economic times and you can miss up to three payments because of the economy and still not lose the persistency discount and if you lose your job or laid off. you can miss payments up to a year and a half and still not lose that discount. prop 33 is good for california consumers. >> there is some folks, we are about to end this, folks in the consumer watch dog say it is not good for people that are unemployed. general he good for californians? >> 48 other states have this law, we actually had it in california from 1996 to 2002, and rates went down. and by the way, uninsured motorist. the number of uninsured motorist dropped in half. this is good public policy and which is why republicans and democrats are supporting. >> bipartisan and we'll look for the resultos election day. keep us up to date. >> thank you. >> what can early voting tell us about the outcome of the election. karl rove said way more than you think. hear from him coming up next. we told you about it next. al gore saying climate change is to blame for the monster storm sandy and the experts may have prove
, and the minute that the story started, in "the new york times" and the "washington post" that iran and economy is indeed in great trouble, the goal posts tend to shift a little bit. matters no longer by getting them back to the table are getting a deal, but now more and more open question marks were raised about can this actually lead to regime change, cannot have it for a couple more months to see what else we can get. as that happens, the interest of the suffering party then decreases to engage indigo should as well because the negotiations can become a negotiation for the terms -- and instead they tend to define their search for the next game changer. something that will once again be able to turn the table and find an exit way from the very situation there and what now but look what happened after the talks collapsed in 2010 and 2009 if the iranians started and enrichment at the 20 some of the there were question marks, significant question marks whether the iranians were succeeding in doing this but they managed to do it. the western imposes sanctions on iran hoping that would change the
. >> chris: you gave us a lot to chew on. let's start with the economy which i think everyone agrees is still the number one concern for voters. senator johnson, in wisconsin, the unemployment rate is now nationally down to 7.8%. gdp growth in the third quarter rose from 1.3 about percent in the second quarter to 2.0. it is still a weak recovery, senator. but aren't the president's policies starting to turn things around? >> we have had an incredibly diapid just armiger recovery and the fact that gdp rose 2% all you can say about that is it is less bad news. what happened in wisconsin is after the first debate the very false caricature that president obama spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying governor romney was utter early shattered. when wisconsinites saw he was a man of integrity and intelligence and had a plan unlike president obama who has no proposals to save either social security or medicare or unlike the democrats in the senate who haven't passed a budget in three years. they know paul ryan somebody with the courage to put forward real proposals. >> chris: let me talk abo
of that. richest country in the history of the earth, largest economy in the world, and yet 47 million people need food stamps? so i believe that this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform andin a president t brings us together. now, i don't just talk about change, i actually have a plan to execute change and to make it happen. and there are five parts to that. and i hope you understand what they are. if you don't, let me just remind you. number one, i really do believe that we were given kind of an ace in the hole, and that is that someone learned how to drill in the earth, not just vertically but horizontally and then tap into pockets of oil and gas. as a result, we have huge new resources and natural gas and oil. so number one for me is take full advantage of our oil, our coal, our gas, our nuclear and our renewables. and that -- that creates, by the way, a lot of jobs in the energy states, of course, but it also creates a lot of jobs in states that use energy, because manufacturing of all kinds uses energy, some more than others. an
, are asking why is it that an advanced economy do we have to live for more than a week without power? and i'm looking at your industry and thinking this is one of the most heavily regulated government intervened industries in the country and those two facts are not connected? >> they're not connected, because basically you cannot stop hurricane sandy from knocking down power lines. and from bringing water into the underground tunnels in new york where we have underground equipment. or creating major snowstorms out in west virginia. we've had everything but the locu locusts in this situation and we've brought in 60,000 -- 60,000 people have left their homes from as far away from california and all around the country to come east here to sit in staging areas throughout the storm to get together, to help to try and bring power back on. they're the unsung heroes. i don't know of any other industry that does that. >> what about these substations, which apparently are going to be a big problem. when can they get cleared up so the power can flow? >> that's another thing. when substation gets flood
this economy on barack obama is kinda like blaming your hangover on the guy making breakfast. i like mitt romney but i'm sorry. they guy has flipped more than a crack house mattress. this campaign has become so toxic, beverly hills housewives are now injecting it into their foreheads.

, and the economy is the most important thing. guess what, in new jersey, the economy just got a hell of a lot tougher. and it's all about laerpd right now. and i hope that president obama and chris christie really by display giving an example to lawmakers who said that they were going to washington to work on behalf of constituents, because i think that we are seeing some real leadership right now, and i think that they can have an impact. and i think it would be good for constituents around the country now to ask the questions of those who are running for office, can you do what those two guys are doing? get your cell phones out? i want to know what you think. tonight's question. do you approve of the federal government's response following hurricane sandy? text "a" for yes, "b" for no to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, new jersey senator robert menendez. he, of course, was with president obama and governor chris christie today. senator, great to have you with us. you were right in the middle of all
but every state has grown. and over the last couple of years as the economy has started to rebound a little bit, very slowly, especially with long-term unemployment remaining very high, we've also seen the growth in snap begin to level off. so come and then again this week of course i think it's important to think about the ability of the programs that respond not just economic conditions but also to disasters. there's a feature the the program that enables snap to be one of the first programs that is on the ground offering help to people and grocery stores doctor reopen, and very temporary help of only a month or two. so that's really important. participation rates among those who are eligible are very high. the most recent estimates for 2009 but we have no reason to think it come down since then, and in 2000 the department of agriculture found 72% of all individuals who are eligible participated in snap. almost 90% of the benefits for which people qualified were actually paid to these eligible people, or provided helpful people on their ebt card, meaning that the people are most likely to
